Thousands of doctors from all over the world enter the United States every year and most will not have the opportunity to practice medicine. To gain approval to practice medicine in the US, foreign-trained doctors must pass parts one and two of the United States Medical Licensing Exam, be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Trained Medical Graduates, enter a residency program and finally, pass a third licensing test.
For some doctors, the cost of medical school in the US is prohibitive. The high cost of exams is one of the biggest challenges immigrant physicians face when trying to practice here. Another challenge is being accepted into medical residency programs. And then there is the cost; fees can be anywhere between $7,500 to $15,000 for a foreign-trained physician to prepare for and pay for exams leading up to a residency. For some, the costs, low acceptance rates and extended time commitment are obstacles toward practicing medicine in the US that are difficult to overcome.
